I am 70 years of age , my right nipple has seapage, could this be caused by thyroid condition?
There is a small chance that your thyroid and breast problems are related. However, first it is important that you rule out potential breast causes of nipple discharge, namely and most significantly, breast cancer. The next step is for you to call your physician and start with a diagnostic mammogram and ultrasound.
